Councillor Sheila Bulpett
I have been a Councillor since May 2015, now Chairman of the Finance Committee. I have lived in Wendover since February 1985 when we moved back to be close to my husband’s family and the place of his childhood. We have four children, all attended local schools and activities so we have been involved with the community since then. After university I worked as a Research Chemist before starting the family. Later I completed a PGCE to become a secondary school science teacher in various local schools. After 19 years I retired to devote more time to family and interests which include art, music, gardening and pilates. I am a member of U3A, Chiltern Society, BBOWT and the Royal Society of Chemistry.

Councillor Marion Clayton
I have lived in Wendover for nearly 40 years, never far from the centre of the village. Most recently, I have served as a Parish Councillor for the past seven years, following 14 years as the County Councillor representing Wendover and Halton. When the plans for HS2 were announced in 2010, I initiated the Wendover HS2 Action Group, and until last year was active in opposing HS2, at the same time supporting “Plan B”, to achieve the best mitigation for Wendover. I am currently involved in the Lionel Abel-Smith Trust, Wendover Youth Centre, Action 4 Youth and Wendover Memorial Hall.

Councillor Roz Green
I have lived in my 15th century cottage in the centre of Wendover for over 20 years. As an antiques dealer, it is very convenient as I work from Antiques At.. Wendover at the top of the High Street; early oak furniture and garden antiques being my favourite things. I joined the Parish Council in 2010 and have to say the last ten plus years have been interesting, however, the future looks somewhat unsettling with the prospect of HS2 and the closure of RAF Halton.

Councillor Nicky Gregory
My connection with Wendover started in 1987 when, after considerable restoration, I opened the Antiques Centre at the Old Post Office. The 29th March 2018 was our 31st anniversary. Over the years it has developed with the Barn Courtyard, shops and tea shop giving added interest. I moved into and renovated a cottage in Back Street in 1988 and first joined the Parish Council shortly after when John Firmin was Chairman and Jane Topliss our Clerk. I left the Council for a brief spell and re-joined in 2010. There have been several changes to Wendover while I have lived here, the by-pass and re-development of the Manor Waste being two. We are now faced with HS2 and the closure of RAF Halton. We look ahead to a challenging future!

My passions include helping the community, cycling and walking in the surrounding Chilterns, skiing and spending quality time with good friends and family. My ambition as a Councillor is to be a considered voice of community, enabling positive changes for the benefit everyone in Wendover.

Councillor Jo Durden Moore
I relocated to Bucks 3+ years ago with my husband, stepchildren and 4 rescue dogs & cats. We settled just outside of Wendover and love everything that the town and the surrounding villages have to offer. After 25+ years of global brand & marketing consulting, I have turned my efforts towards voluntary community projects. I am aiming to make a difference as a Governor at Aylesbury Grammar School, a voluntary dog trainer at Hearing Dogs for Deaf People and now as a Councillor for Wendover.
As part of one of the 5 "feeder villages" who depend on Wendover, I believe that visionary planning for the future of Wendover will ensure that sensitive development of our wonderfully vibrant and historic market town retains all that makes it special and unique whilst continuing to serve those who reside within and around it. I sit on the planning committee in order to be part of the future development of the area and am looking forward to serving Wendover and it's surrounding villages as our world around us evolves.
My passions involve animals, yoga, walking, singing, wildlife, upcyling and above all realizing the potential of what people can achieve together for their villages, towns, and communities.

Councillor Diane Washington
I was born and raised in Wendover and was educated at the local Schools. After moving around the country, and a three year stint living in the USA, I returned to Wendover in 1988. I have 2 daughters that both went to John Colet and both still work and live locally, I also have a grandaughter that is currently at Wendover C of E School. I have over 30 years’ experience in customer services, both in banking and clinical environments. I currently live and work in the centre of Wendover and enjoy meeting and talking to local people about all aspects of our community.
My interests include genealogy, reading and quizzes but most of all I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, walking my dog Mr Pickles and visiting my Sister in the USA. As a councillor I hope to make a difference and be involved in shaping the future of the local community. To become someone who will help in decisions for the benefit of local people, serving the community and acting to improve the quality of life while preserving the heart and character of Wendover.

Councillor Kieren Jarratt
I have lived in Wendover since 2013 and settled here with my fiance, Dee, and my son who is in Year 6 at Wendover Junior School. As a Logistics Officer in the RAF, I have lived all over the country, but now prefer to commute to work rather than to move to new postings every couple of years. I currently commute daily to RAF Odiham, where I am the Officer Commanding Logistics for the RAF Chinook Force.
I am passionate about Wendover and the beautiful surrounding countryside and am driven to ensure that as a community, we do not sleepwalk into becoming a conurbation of Aylesbury or the ever-encroaching urban sprawl out from London. Embracing new with old, I believe that the council should campaign to deliver a vision for Wendover vested in its historic and natural charm with the growing need to protect and provide areas of natural tranquillity for respite and recreation within the crowded South East region.
I am a keen outdoor sportsman, a competitive cyclist and Nordic Biathlete and am often to be seen roller skiing on the forest trails of Wendover Woods. I encourage community engagement and ideas and look forward to serving the community this coming year to ensure Wendover continues to be a beautiful and inspiring place to live.
